* ReligionIsRight: Beneditx thinks his arguments (especially Aquinas' Five Ways) prove God exists.
* ReligionIsWrong: He becomes convinced that they don't after hearing Palinor's replies, which, to him, means that there is no evidence for a God, and so how could one exist?

* ArtisticLicenseReligion: Catholic doctrine did not view witchcraft as heresy in 1450. In fact, the official take was that witchcraft claims were delusions or lies, with it being sinful to believe they were true. Thus an Inquisitor would not tell people that witchcraft was a sign of heresy. Atheism is also not heresy, and so the Inquisitor would have no authority over Palinor. The only problem would be him trying to convince anyone else of atheism, which he didn't do.

* TheFundamentalist: The Inquisitor, unsurprisingly. Severo hoped he might be corrupt (as many Inquisitors were reputed as) and thus they could buy him off. However, he's soon shown that the man is a true believer.

* {{UsefulNotes/Agnosticism}}: Even though he is identified as an atheist, Palinor's stated view toward the existence of God seems more like a strong version of agnosticism. He states that it's impossible to know whether God exists, and anyone who claims they do is simply mistaken.
